Nash Bridges…the Gap for LA

Nash Bridges...the Gap for LA

“This is all just one big misunderstanding, officer.” In an unforeseen twist, the reports on Steve Nash being traded to LA were greatly misunderstood. Actually, he’s joining the LA GALAXY, not the LA Lakers. I know, it’s confusing, but hopefully that image above clears things up. In all seriousness the addition of Steve Nash doesn’t solve all of the Lakers problems, but it does make them a drastically better team. We’re all aware of how good Nash is – he did it for years in Phoenix, then […]

March Madness (aka “NBA Trade Deadline”)

March Madness (aka "NBA Trade Deadline")

Here’s an armchair NBA League Pass fan’s run down of the trade deadline 2011-2012 Dwight Howard opt-ing in for 2012-2013 Dwight Howard will NOT opt in. I can’t imagine this happening. It’s not the way this world works. The way NBA contracts and careers are structured, the thing every player wants is guaranteed money. Dwight, if he opts out, is about to sign a 4 year max deal (under the new CBA, used to be 6) with another team. He could get 5 years by […]

And for us fans (well at least for this fan) it was the last straw. What really pisses me off is that no […]

Kyle Lowry + Luis Scola for Pau Gasol

Kyle Lowry + Luis Scola for Pau Gasol

Hmm…The more I think about this trade the more I like it. Dan Patrick was putting this trade option out there on his radio program this morning. The Lakers trade Pau Gasol for Kyle Lowry and Luis Scola. My first reaction was “No chance”…but then I let the dust settle and it seems like a good idea. Kyle Lowry is putting up SOLID numbers this year (15.9ppg, 5.2rebs, 7.5ast, 1.9spg). Beyond that he’s tough, physically and mentally – and to play with Kobe that’s what […]

'Sheed to sign with LA?!?!
